Your daughter is definitely very lucky to have a mom like you! I can say this because I felt blessed every single time I talked to my mother. She was always open for discussion and yes, she didn’t always agree on every view I have but she was open to suggestion and change. We don’t force each other’s view on each other and I guess that’s why we were like best friends.

My mom and you are definitely the kind of mother I aspire to be in the future. Thank you for reading and for your thoughtful comment, Phyllis! My mom might not be here anymore but I see her in mothers like you ❤
